  • danslee Dan Slee (@danslee) reported from Camden Town, England

    Several hours on and I'm still wincing at the frustrating incompetence of @virginmedia's customer services. I'm trying to go. The only way is by phone. But they cut me off after an hour largely on hold. #FreeDan.

  • MichelleMcGrade Michelle McGrade (@MichelleMcGrade) reported from Brentford, England

    No internet for 3 days engineers no show twice @virginmedia customer service best response- I’m sorry I‘ll book you another appointment at our convenience! Shocking!

  • jimiinc James Enck (@jimiinc) reported from Camberwell, England

    @virginmedia I wasn't complaining at all, just commenting on how Virgin is on top of its game. My broadband was only down for half an hour, no dramas. And your field tech was very friendly and helpful in explaining what was going on. All good here.

  • starsenic dicle erver (@starsenic) reported from Hackney, England

    AVOID VIRGIN MEDIA! I REPEAT, AVOID VIRGIN MEDIA! THEY WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE DIFFICULT AND WILL DO ANYTHING NOT TO HELP YOU ON THE PHONE! THEY HANG UP THE PHONE ON MY FACE! @virginmedia

  • johnnieego John Lyons (@johnnieego) reported from Hackney, England

    Hey @virginmedia, I'm only grudgingly a customer because we can't have a dish here. I certainly don't want to switch to your mobile. How about saving a tree or two and not sending me brochures all the bloody time. Ta.

  • tulsehillboy Lee Winter (@tulsehillboy) reported from Lambeth, England

    @virginmedia Truly dreadful customer service today. Spent three hours in “chat” and no further forward. 100mbps is only 3!!!

  • JonMarkDeane Jon Mark Deane (@JonMarkDeane) reported from Lambeth, England

    @virginmedia Broadband is down. Box is showing solid green base light, solid green WiFi light and a flashing green internet light. Reboot, lower cycling, full disconnection and reconnection achieves nothing. TV service fine (sans network features).

  • northern_puddin Jason Hartley (@northern_puddin) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia Thanks I checked earlier but it says no known issues. I also checked the guide for the lights on the front and it’s a connection problem / constant software download as it’s flashing green. Works for 5 mins then reboots and spends ages all flashing green again. 3 hours now.

  • AbFitNutrition Veronica Mitchell RD (@AbFitNutrition) reported from Richmond, England

    It’s so annoying how broadband cos try 2 screw existing customers. They suck u in with an offer better than their competitors, then each yr, they increase the price, but offers small reduction if you u stay with reduced service #VirginMedia

  • LazyValentina Lazy Valentina (@LazyValentina) reported from Croydon, England

    @virginmedia help! Something wrong with my router or Internet service. Authentication error, no Internet 😢

  • StevenCooke94 Steven Cooke (@StevenCooke94) reported from Poplar, England

    @virginmedia after months of phone calls with virgin they have finally resolved my problem thanks for the people that finally helped but some of your team need some proper training awful customer service!

  • PauleneCarr PauleneCarr (@PauleneCarr) reported from Croydon, England

    @virginmedia @MoneyTelegraph For last 2 months in the SW16 area VIRGIN TV & BROADBAND services has an ‘outage problem.’ Despite several engineer call outs the issue has not been resolved so no access to internet. Virgin please sort out and provide compensation for lack of service

  • ukwip Anthony Cohen (@ukwip) reported from London, England

  • chriswoods84 Woodsy (@chriswoods84) reported from Ealing, England

  • Murvalous1 Tom (@Murvalous1) reported from Hackney, England

    @virginmedia At least twice a month it has issues, now waiting 2 days for a network engineer, it's just overall down too often to rely on.

  • Morgannaredhead Morgz (@Morgannaredhead) reported from Islington, England

    @virginmedia Never mind Service is appalling lately.

  • NW6Penguin Napoleon (@NW6Penguin) reported from Camden Town, England

    @DuncanWeldon Oooh I'd better get virgin media to fix my bbc4 signal quality

  • Murvalous1 Tom (@Murvalous1) reported from Hackney, England

    @virginmedia 4 days now with no WiFi or TV, no explanation, 40min waiting on the “service” number last night, 25 min so far today - I ******* hate this company!!!!! I just want to cancel!!! Please!!!!

  • DannyJamesEarls D A N (@DannyJamesEarls) reported from Camberwell, England

    @virginmedia Want to discuss as my contract ran out in April and im moving home so would like to cancel the deal I currently have for TV broadband and Phone.

  • DannyJamesEarls D A N (@DannyJamesEarls) reported from Camberwell, England

    @virginmedia I need customer support regarding my contract.

  • NadaShakour Nada Shakour (@NadaShakour) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia So day 3 still no internet. Ur team promised to deal with it this morning at 10. Of course nothing happened and no one called. Now call centre telling me that there’s another outage in my area. Gave me a number to file a complaint. Ridiculous !!!

  • northern_puddin Jason Hartley (@northern_puddin) reported from Kensington, England

    No broadband since June 27 and told fix by July 9th. In central London. Wow. Just wow. Also despite calls still no explanation just a prepared script in a distant call centre. Internet is an essential service for business in the developed world @virginmedia @richardbranson

  • chrisTstraker Chris Straker (@chrisTstraker) reported from Epsom and Ewell District, England

    @virginmedia Please could someone let me know how to deal with issues, regarding mobile Wi-fi hotpspots and voicemail from abroad. Tried a number of times and yet to have any conversation, that didn’t require me repeating myself two or three times !!

  • kmckeand Kate McKeand (@kmckeand) reported from Wandsworth, England

    Seriously @virginmedia what is wrong with your internet in Wandsworth I pay £47 a month and the service is patchy cuts out all the time it’s supposed to be fast fibre broadband but it’s anything but at the moment!!

  • NadaShakour Nada Shakour (@NadaShakour) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia We lost internet Friday night. Today Sunday morning support team say issue fixed in area and so created a new ticket nbre giving YOU another48hrs to solve it and at same time saying engineer will call within 3hrs. No call. Support unable to help. No Senior to speak to.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @deborah_bonetti @virginmedia I live in sw5 and have been without broadband all day: I have been utterly appalled at the rudeness and ineptitude of their customer services people.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @KatiaDelNegro @virginmedia Ps I can’t believe they are telling you to check your cables . The entire of sw5 and w8 is down

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @KatiaDelNegro @virginmedia Yes I am experiencing this too in sw5. Was staggered at the rude stance taken by customer services when I phoned up

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @LOLRoadhouse @virginmedia I too am appalled at the way I was treated by the virgin media customer services people . Suggest you complain to @ofcom

  • turboeddie08 Eddie Seber (@turboeddie08) reported from London, England

    @virginmedia Btoadband not working, postcode Rm10 8JT

  • deborah_bonetti Deborah Bonetti (@deborah_bonetti) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia Thanks. The link says there are problems in the area and they should be fixed by 8pm but that’s a whole day using my mobile data instead of broadband! I am really disappointed.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @alandavies1 @virginmedia Having just experience this call centre I must agree. The level of unprofessionalism rudeness and incompetence was staggering. Especially towards a loyal customer of many years’ standing

  • EamonnCurran2 Eamonn Curran (@EamonnCurran2) reported from Ealing, England

    Are they F###ing serious. @virginmedia Twitter is only about publicity never actually doing anything to resolve the issues .PS 2 weeks later and the is is still open.that engineer must have a really long drive !!!@

  • jdaukes Johnny Daukes (@jdaukes) reported from Brentford, England

    @virginmedia It’s down. Expected fix by 16:00.

  • tonycelebrity tony pickering (@tonycelebrity) reported from Camberwell, England

    @virginmedia Yes I’ve reported several times and when I run the checker it says no issue Yet when I call the 0345 number it says there is It was supposed to be fixed by the 24th Today I’m working from home and I don’t have any internet AGAIN!! Come on guys

  • Nicolanoodle Nicola Fish (@Nicolanoodle) reported from Kingston upon Thames, England

    @virginmedia I totally agree. Sadly it doesn’t seem that easy. I repeated at least 5 times ‘I’d just want to cancel my account’ to no avail.

  • JBazzler Jack Barry (@JBazzler) reported from Lambeth, England

    My internet has been down for hours. But there is no way to contact @virginmedia. They are had at customer service. If I don't get internet soon I will go mad like in the Shining and there will be no Edinburgh show for anyone

  • YenSanford Yen Sanford (@YenSanford) reported from Bexleyheath, England

    @emloue @virginmedia @virginmedia contacted me and we went through some trouble shooting guides. Fortunately, as well, I have two tech savvy brothers who helped and sorted it, updated and all. We managed to fix between us all. 👍🏼

  • jeverington James Everington (@jeverington) reported from Camden Town, England

    @pardel @virginmedia I haven’t been able to register with Virgin Media for days. There seems to be a silence from @virginmedia on any issues.

  • gorgeousuk anne hill (@gorgeousuk) reported from London, England

    @foxinthebox2010 @virginmedia The £20, £15, £10 down to £5 smacked of desperation really! Just give me the bloody box. We’ve been with you long enough!!!!!

  • gorgeousuk anne hill (@gorgeousuk) reported from London, England

    @foxinthebox2010 @virginmedia You do have a point @foxinthebox2010 though because they were asking if customers would be willing to pay £20 one off fee, then £15, £10, £5...which implies they could afford to upgrade for free but just want to squeeze more money of out their customers. We’ve had awful service

  • gorgeousuk anne hill (@gorgeousuk) reported from London, England

    @foxinthebox2010 @virginmedia It was a customer insight survey sent to me by email. Gives you no chance to really voice your opinion as it’s just pushing the new box.

  • tobeconfirmed Ramzi Yakob (@tobeconfirmed) reported from Bromley, England

    @pixelandsoda @Senna82 @virginmedia Still no joy in BR1 4A... Also met with clueless customer support who had no idea there was an issue / not seeing a reported issue on the system.

  • tobeconfirmed Ramzi Yakob (@tobeconfirmed) reported from Bromley, England

    Because every interaction with @virginmedia on any customer service channel is enough to make me want to open a vein.

  • gorgeousuk anne hill (@gorgeousuk) reported from London, England

    ...customers who have been with @virginmedia for a loooooooooooooonnnnnnnnggggggg time and bloody feels like a looooong time. Service at the weekend was crap (again). Expect a phone call tomorrow to the complaints dept.

  • DaveMauger Dave Mauger (@DaveMauger) reported from Wandsworth, England

    @virginmedia Thanks. No known issue in the area according to your site. I'm now able to sign it, but your website keeps freezing when I try to run a test.

  • ketanc86 Ketan Chauhan (@ketanc86) reported

    @bt_uk Complete and utter lie. Don't go with BT absolute bullshitters! Worth paying a little more and going with @virginmedia or even Sky. Have experienced endless issues with BT and they can't take responsibility for their actions. Running down my contract and saying goodbye!

  • jj1206d jj1206 (@jj1206d) reported

    @virginmedia awful awful service. Poor quality internet keeps disconnecting. On going for 3 weeks. Call each day only to ne fobbed off !!! Cant speak to uk team either

  • Mikemorley Mike Morley (@Mikemorley) reported

    @virginmedia Sometimes it’s best to just hold your hands up and say ‘we have messed up’ sadly it feels like your call centre folks are incapable of such behaviour and there is zero ownership of problems.

  • PaulGardinerMU Paul Gardiner (@PaulGardinerMU) reported

    @virginmedia It was more of a complaint to MUTV. I can view MUTV on my Virgin box, but MUTV don't allow me to access MUTV on desktop. However, it would be useful if I could access the MUTV channel on Virgin Go...

  • stevanl Stevan Litobac (@stevanl) reported

    @virginmedia After 19 minutes of this they disconnected the call. Disappointing service to say the least. #poorcustomerservice

  • eilidhmuz Eilidh Murray (@eilidhmuz) reported from Tottenham, England

    @danslee @virginmedia Oh I feel your pain. Had such bad bad customer service with @virginmedia in the past.

  • ItsGamingTv3 zohaib (@ItsGamingTv3) reported

    Virgin media is attualy shit

  • WildDarren Darren Wild (@WildDarren) reported

    @danslee @virginmedia @virginmedia have the worst customer service. Shambolic and disrespectful. Careless and uncaring. Utterly cold and thoughtless. Disconnected from the customer and leaching off the profits of disappointment. Other than that they are ok.

  • CheMikey Che Mikey (@CheMikey) reported

    @virginmedia It wouldn't configure, we can not have an engineer visit for a couple of weeks, for reasons we am happy to discuss in private. No other options were available by the team, even when we suggested a few. We think we're going to cancel our contract :(

  • SilverFox0916 Andrew (@SilverFox0916) reported

    @KaiCruzing @virginmedia I still wouldn't touch anything with the Virgin prefix. The trains are crap, he is making money out of the NHS. My cousin works for VirginAtlantic and I can't repeat what HE said about the company. He's get the sack at 30,000 feet! 😜
